What is Peripheral Neuropathy
What is Peripheral Neuropathy and Can It Be Treated?
First let’s talk about what Peripheral Neuropathy is… Simply put, it is damage to the peripheral nervous system, which is part of the body’s communication highway. The brain and the spinal cord make up the central nervous system, whereas the peripheral nerves are those that send sensory information to the brain and spinal cord.
Each peripheral nerve is specialized
- Some send the feeling of numbness or tingling
- Some send burning sensations
- Some send the feeling of muscle weakness
- Some send sensitivity of touch
These symptoms usually affect the arm and hands or legs and feet. Those who suffer with Peripheral Neuropathy often complain that their entire lifestyle has changed because of the pain and symptoms they experience, including the fact that it disrupts their sleep. People who have been diagnosed with either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes are at risk of Peripheral Neuropathy.

At The Bellevue Pain Institute we have had great success treating our patients that suffer with Peripheral Neuropathy using a non-invasive, drug free, non surgical and painless treatment, using neuropathy laser treatment.
